10 Reasons To Work For Deloitte

10 Reasons To Work For Deloitte

Considering a career with Deloitte? Today, we’ve got 10 reasons to work for Deloitte… 

Earlier this year, I spoke with a manager at Deloitte’s London office and got some really juicy detail on what it’s like to work for the second largest professional services firm in the world (by revenue). Here’s what I gathered during a conversation with a London-based manager in Deloitte’s Consulting practice.

First, some background. Interestingly, Deloitte is actually a network of firms covering different countries and regions rather than one big firm. You’ll even find cross-ownership within Deloitte. For instance, the UK firm owns or part-owns the businesses in Switzerland, the Middle East, India, China, Russia, and Africa. Deloitte is one of the members of the Big 4 – Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC), Ernst & Young, and KPMG. All of the giants have corporate offices worldwide and recruit in large numbers on college campuses and MBA doorsteps.

Why Work For Deloitte Consulting? Find out!

  1. Working with big clients, and doing critical work for the biggest companies in the world. For example, Deloitte is helping its banks implement the Basel 3 regulations for the industry.
  2. An incredible network. Deloitte has 193,000 employees worldwide providing audit, tax, consulting, enterprise risk, and financial advisory services.
  3. If you show that you’re good at selling, you’ll get a great career push forward, and be rewarded! This is perhaps in contrast to firms like Bain, who recently told us they’re not looking for sales people.
  4. An unstuffy atmosphere compared to firms like McKinsey. At Deloitte, there are fewer people who went to private school!
  5. Meritocracy and professionalism. There are clear structures for pay and promotion. Compared to the other Big Four firms, Deloitte has a reputation for being meritocratic.
  6. Diversity. At the firm’s London office you will meet people from all over the world, and there’s a lot of religious diversity too, e.g. women wearing hijab and men wearing kippah. There are networks for employees from different religions, ethnic backgrounds, LGBT, etc.
  7. After a recent increase in employer contributions, Deloitte now has one of the most generous pension schemes of the Big Four. They also offer a generous benefits package.
  8. There is plenty of training available for people who are willing to go for it.
  9. International growth. Developed markets are growing slowly so more growth needs to come from emerging markets. The UK business is plugged into a lot of the emerging markets and employees have the opportunity to go on exchange programs to other offices. In particular, if you speak the language of any of these markets you’ll be a great asset to the firm.
  10. Women. Deloitte in the U.S. is famous for supporting its female employees. The UK firm is following suit with a leadership program for women and other initiatives.
